In loving memory of Wendy May Reimers
16~05~1950 to 08~09~2023
Wendy was an amazing wife, mother of 2, grandmother of 4, great-grandmother of 2, mother-in-law, aunt, cousin, and wonderful friend to many.
Wendy was born in Blackall, Qld and settled into family life on the farm in Coowonga, Qld for the past 45 years. She was a very much loved neighbour and always smiling and available for a cuppa and a chat.
Wendy loved baking and was a keen gardener and you could often find her selling her wares at the local markets and car boot sales.
She was loving, kind, caring and beautiful.
Then in May 2023, her world and ours changed forever. They didn’t know what was wrong for months and she rapidly deteriorated. Finally she was diagnosed with CJD.
Wendy fought to the end with her strength and courage. She was able to spend her final months with family and friends before peacefully passing away on Friday 8th September, 2023.
This rare disease came out of nowhere. We have so many questions left unanswered.
